Dolphin Browser HD V6.0 Released, New Features in Tow

Well, the development team behind Dolphin Browser HD has just released an update, and it brings an awesome new feature to the table. They’re calling it Webzine, and it’s actually pretty nice-looking. It’s essentially a thumbnail view of web pages and bookmarks, and users can scroll through the thumbnail as if it was the actual page.
